I hear you there. It does come down to complacency but it is not the real problem. Why? Because of the psychology of what is happening. I know,
it's easy to say that but it's true. People will believe what they are told on the news. Period. Why? Because they were brought up to believe
and trust in the news. It's not about them being complacent. They (being the general public) don't KNOW any better. Why? Well, partly because
less than 10 owners now control virtually everything they get as news. That means only a very FEW points of view are brought into the equation.
As for the lie as truth part, well, it's also well documented (from a psychology point of view) that if one is told a lie enough times it becomes
truth to them. Not everyone is exposed to the diversity that the internet brings. Also, many of those that are exposed to the internet don't
necessarily use it for news. Many use it for networking, gaming, school research, etc. So the bulk of what they deem as news still comes from the
TV. And that is the problem.
It's like blaming the kids that grew up within the welfare system for ending up on welfare themselves. In the majority of these cases they KNEW NO
BETTER. Sure, it's easy for most who never have been exposed to this to simply say, "They have every opportunity available to them that I had."
Well, that's a big fat lie. Period. It's something that those people say to ease their conscience.
You see, I grew up in that situation and yes, I just happened to get myself out of the system. But my sister is still stuck in it with 5 kids of her
Okay, that was a bit of a stretch to give as an example. Suffice it to say that it is easier to put the blame on the masses as being 'complacent'
because it removes the burden from you and I for trying to awaken them to the truth. Well, that's the easy way out. They are complacent because
they know no better. They are being raised in the government controlled public school systems to absolutely trust the government and the media. Why?
That may be something to ask yourself. Why would they be doing that?
Because it is the best way to get the masses to believe the lies you want them to believe.
